"(If I have to choose a coach from whom I have worked) I choose Rafa Benítez, he taught me a lot. He is a true gentleman and I learnt a lot with him. I appreciate his way to reach to each player. He can talk about a lot of issues. I took advantage of everything he could teach me. I remember my first chat with him, 45 minutes long. He drew on a blackboard a field and asked to me: "What are you?". I answered: "A forward". Then, he asked me: "What is the main thing to forwards? Scoring goals, isn´t it?". These kind of things you remember for all your life. I liked working with him and all that I learnt from him was marvelous. I will thank him for our moments in China all my life.
The players always want to know everything, but it´s impossible. There is always another perspective like the one from Rafa Benítez. With his honors, I think he will know some things to do it right. The main thing is to learn, to know your virtues and the way to use it to help the team".
